I know that the worse type of diagnosis is self diagnosis. That said today I figured out that I have a good chance of having fibro. Now what? Do I just call my general practice doctor and ask him for a second opinion? (LOL) Actually I feel a little relived for years I have been telling people that loud noises hurt me, Beat me with a stick or yell at me it is the same thing. They told me I am nuts. From looking at a picture on the web I hurt at 16 of the 18 tender points. I thought everyone did. When my teen came home I poked her too. She said the points did not hurt. I just had my thyroid removed and was home surfing for vivid dreams. I am 42 and just had my first funny dream. For years it was a problem but with my thyroid removed my dreams have changed. Fibro kept popping up so I took a look at it, I was floored. So any way I have all the symptoms except the low blood pressure. Could someone explain brain fog? Is it memory? Some days my memory is good. Most days it is rotten. Some days I can remember how I feel about a person but have no clue what they look like or who they are. These would be business people in passing that I need to remember, people that I have only met once or twice. Some days I just feel retarded (Not offend anyone but I just do not know how to say it nice) It is like One day I just wake up and my iq is 50 points less. Other days I am a genius with quick recall. Is this brain fog? Where do I go from here?
